great stuff. we have seen a lot of efforts, but things like rupert murdoch's daily have not excited us on a journalistic level. but i think we are laying groundwork for some institutions that they possibly do that in the next three to five years. >> i'm wondering what you think it would take for it to go to that next level and provide quality journalism. >> i just want to offer a slight difference of opinion. i think that we are seeing a couple of things happen right now. they are positive things that are happening. while it may be true that the first wave of online-only journalism tended to be national and international criticism and opinion, which got the name of blogs, what we are actually seeing of the local level is something even more exciting than that. as newspapers have become challenged, and we have seen, sadly, the destruction of capabilities of newspaper and local television stations and other media in the local arena, we are seeing a new layer journalism being created at the local level. some startups such as the "bases and close " in san francisco, "texas tribune" out in

for their enlightening statement they said. >> i am very frustrated. this debt hearing thing is a red herring. murdoch is under terrible scruntity in europe. all that is being discussed. they have that debt ceiling thing on the table. he's their god father of propaganda. host: lori is fox new the only one talking about the debt ceiling? caller: they are the worst. host: i'll leave it there. there were people on the ballot called republicans that won. i will say that president obama is not going to run on the things he listed. those people are so far down. iraq, afghanistan. they are almost imperceptible. i think people don't know what dodd-frank is about. the economy is front and center. the president will be judged on his results. his results are rot ton. if we see a rebound before the election, great. you can't say we've done these great things people don't really care about. obama care is something that hasn't pleased the country. they have to run on his record. right now, that's a problem. host: back to the phone, kentucky in mississippi. you there? caller: my comment is about cutting the debt.
